CROATIAN POKER PRO CLAIMS VICTORY IN ROZVADOV
Euro 232,241 for Banic.
Croatian poker pro Ivan Banic is Euro 232,241 wealthier this week after winning the 2016 WSOP Circuit Rozvadov Main Event against a field of 851 entrants at Kings Casino, Rozvadov in the Czech Republic.
Banic also received a free pass to compete in the end-of-season World Series of Poker Global Casino Championship, and a WSOP Circuit winners ring.
In the heads up, Banic faced German ace Yehuda Chikita Cohen, who had enjoyed an exhilarating ride through the field with some major double ups.
The duo found themselves the last men standing following the exit at third for Euro 103,441 of Romanias Mihai Croitoru after a clash with Banic, who by that stage commanded a massive chip lead.
The heads up confrontation with Cohen was a brief affair due to Banics 9 to 1 chip advantage and was over in two hands, leaving Cohen with a second placing pay check of Euro 144,551.

Georgios Vrakas Euro 80,037
